Daily Haiku #11


I’ll never be accustomed to the realities of pet ownership, no matter how many times I experience it.

For Buford, my Boo Boo, I am not ready for you to leave me. Only yesterday I was putting you through puppy classes. Where has the time gone? Long ago I was your elder, but now the roles have reversed. I dread the day you’ll breathe your last;  I already miss you.

    Oh the memories I have of Buford! Sending you loving thoughts. It’s never easy to loose a family member.

      Thank you, Kelcie! I appreciate that, truly. Indeed, it is so hard to lose the most loyal of friends.
